Default Perth Australia

Hi all,
Thanks to the forum creators for recognising the obvious need for a place to contribute and learn. I am really impressed with what I have seen in this place from my limited time looking.

I may be a long way from many of the other members but painting travels across borders and oceans alike. Hopefully I can contribute something sensible from time to time.

Definately looking forward to the journey

Regards
Hamish

Painting does indeed cross borders!! My original plan was to paint myself around the world (I was 17 at the time, just started my apprenticeship in Switzerland) and up to now I have painted in many countries and it is pretty much the same deal wherever you go. I have been to Perth, but only briefly on my way up to Broome. What a fantastic country Australia is!!! To anyone who has ever wanted to go- just do it!! Well, I guess you might want to wait untill the Dollar goes back up.. not a good time for us Americanos to go anywhere really..
I'm really new to this forum too, welcome!
